Netbt.sys crashes with Stop 0xA upon receiving broadcast address 0.0.0.0


Your system might crash if the master browser, which is typically your PDC,
receives a broadcast address of 0.0.0.0. If you have this problem on your
system, you’ll see the message “Stop 0xA in Netbt.sys” on the blue screen. The
browser causes the crash when it incorrectly processes the 0.0.0.0 address. The
problem applies to all Windows NT 4.0 systems, including Enterprise Edition and
regardless of service pack level. Microsoft hasreleased a bug fix for netbt.sys
on October 11, 1990. You can obtain the updated version only from Microsoft
Support.
